The African Civic Tech Atlas (database) is a living collection of civic tech initiatives in Africa. This database is for the civic tech community to use in research, articles and others. Here, you add your civic tech project, initiative, or organisation and find other civic tech organisations from over 30 African countries that are using technology and other methodologies for civic issues.
This collection of African civic tech case studies is a resource dedicated to sharing lessons and learnings from African innovators. We hope this resource helps the community understand what is going on in the civic tech and civic innovation field in Africa. This is a space to learn and share tips, experiences, successes and challenges facing African civic tech innovators.
